Waaaaay back on June 1 (see I’m trying to catch up here) Jack and Dasha got to participate in a “Dance Concert”. They had been active in a dance class since Aug., and this was their chance to SHINE (the theme of the recital). I wasn’t sure how it was going to go but went to the rehearsal with high hopes. I came home from the rehearsal with prayers on my lips and dread in my heart (that means it didn’t exactly go great).
That was Dasha’s expression pretty much the entire time she was on stage! She just couldn’t stop looking surprised; it was really funny. And Jack couldn’t stop looking at everyone else (maybe that’s because his genius mommy forgot to bring his glasses and he couldn’t see!).
(Post recital cuteness!)
The actual recital went great. The kids did their dance (Dasha only tried to leap off the stage once!) and they received thunderous applause! The class was made up of kids with specials needs and each child was assigned a “helper” to ensure no one wandered off and remind the kids where they were in case they forgot :) Jack’s helper was a special girl named Madelyn. Yes, big sister Madelyn! After the recital we took ourselves out to lunch to celebrate. It felt like a special day!

We had a snowstorm on Madelyn’s birthday. Although it was a huge inconvenience, it was beautiful!
Less than a week later, Easter.
That was the best pic. Sad.
Less than a month later, Madelyn went to prom!
Jackson’s art teacher picked one of his projects to include in the annual art show at an actual gallery :)
(His is the picture of the chicks. They used little sponges.)
We had end-of-the school year stuff – last concerts, field trips, parties, and holy cow – Jackson had kindergarten graduation! Cute, cute, cute!
The best teacher IN THE WORLD!!
On the very last day of school (making a very rare blog appearance) TYLER graduated 8th grade!
This means we now have a high school freshman in da house!! Even though I don’t post much about this kid, I love him to pieces!
And coming up in it’s very own post, the Jack & Dasha dance concert! The day after that we finally began our summer break. Whew.
